The state-run Belarusian cement plant, Mogilev oblast, has supplied the first 500-ton consignment of the cement of the highest standard ³550² to Finland. Specialists of a Finnish company visited the plant, took samples of the cement and tested them at their laboratories. They were satisfied with the quality of the Belarusian cement. This is why the sides reached a preliminary agreement on further cooperation. According to plant officials, Finland has become the fifth country to import Belarusian cement. The plant constantly exports its products to Russia, Poland, Lithuania and Latvia. On the whole the enterprise exports about 25-30 per cent of all its products.  The enterprise can produce 850,000t of cement a year. In 2003 the plant produced 716,8000t of cement.
